*CSYNC/Composite Sync is replaced by +12V on PAL SNES and PAL Gamecube consoles (But not the PAL N64) 

Not all signals are available on all systems:

Composite Video Y Y Y Y Y Y
S-Video N Y N Y Y N
RGB N Y N N N Y

Some AV cables have different internal components between regions:

Console Signal PAL NTSC
SNES Composite Video 75ohm resistor to ground on Composite Video Straight through to display
SNES S-Video Outputs S-Video but cable components (if any) are unknown at this time Straight through to display
SNES RGB 75ohm resistors to ground on R, G, B and Composite Video 220uF Capacitors* in series on R, G & B
N64 Composite Video 75ohm resistor to ground on Composite Video (and 220uF capacitor* in series is also recommended) Straight through to display
N64 S-Video 75ohm resistor to ground and 220uF capacitor* in series on Luma. 75ohm resistor to ground and 68nF capacitor in series on Chroma Straight through to display
N64 RGB Requires modification first - Only a certain early French model - 'NUS-001(FRA)' - can be modified easily. Any cable components will depend on the mod performed Requires modification first - Only early NTSC consoles can be modified easily. Any cable components will depend on the mod performed
Gamecube Composite Video 75ohm resistor to ground and 220uF capacitor* in series on Composite Video Straight through to display
Gamecube S-Video Does not output S-Video from the MultiAV port Straight through to display
Gamecube RGB 220uF Capacitors* in series on R, G & B. If you are going to watch/use the Composite video picture aswell (Scart connection) then you also need to use a 75ohm resistor to ground and 220uF capacitor* in series on Composite Video Does not output RGB from the MultiAV port. RGB can be obtained from the 'Digital AV Out' port by using a modified Component/D-Terminal cable. For more info see here.

*220uF capacitors are polarised, and it is important that the positive leg always goes towards the console and negative leg towards TV/Display.

The PAL SNES was internally revised 4 or more times during its lifetime. Later consoles used a different video encoder chip and supporting circuitry and 'appear' to work fine with an unmodified PAL Gamecube/NTSC SNES Scart cable (with capacitors)
